At first glance, another American Apparel ad seeming to buck tradition. They've improved, yes. Instead of showcasing barely legal porn in medias res, it's the beat just before the bass guitar kicks in. Iris is on her knees, glazed eyes, open mouth, between two cars in the parking lot... And the kicker in the copy! "She keeps herself busy on those intercontinental flights with good books and a pocket rocket." [emphasis added, hyperlink added for the uninformed]. See also this one with octogenarians. In light of this recent joint, doesn't it seem like Boo and Bev are smirking at us all for giving a damn about how a sexual harassment lawsuit laden clothing don advertises his incredibly boring product? Yes, yes it does, the last line of this new one says, "Her current read is, "...How America's Lawsuit Culture Undermines our Freedom." Right... Either this is AA's way of digging back or someone is ad-hoaxing. I just pinged Alexandra Spunk, content advisor for AA's brand management team, so perhaps we shall find out. Ad found on back cover of The L Magazine.
UPDATE: Spunt has still not responded to The Spunker's inquiries. Are they afraid of, or baffled by, the truth?
